Deal making behind purchase of BHP Navajo Mine
-This audio is in Navajo and English, but we can translate to English if we get enough requests. PLEASE share with your parents, grandparents, friends, and neighbors.

- This audio is a report by Shiprock's Council Delegate, Russell Begaye on the purchase of BHP Navajo Mine. It is an enlightening and totally incredible report on the wheeling and deal making that took place under the cloak of secrecy in Window Rock to buy the BHP Navajo Mine. The extreme measures taken by the Department of Justice, Council Delegate LoRenzo Bates, Navajo Transition Energy Company, BHP Billiton, Navajo Nation Attorney General Harrison Tsosie and President Shelly to keep the public out of the process borders on criminal conduct.

- Where are the $3 million due diligence reports? Where is the transparency of the Navajo Mine purchase? Where is the democracy for the people to voice their opinions and make an informed decision?
